Nicki Minaj Talks Summer Jam, Foxy Brown, & Free Show on ‘The Breakfast Club’

Nicki Minaj

After her lengthy conversation with Funkmaster Flex on Monday evening, Nicki Minaj called into Hot 97 competitor Power 105 on Tuesday morning. She spoke with “The Breakfast Club’s” DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God, and Angela Yee about Summer Jam, her friendship with Foxy Brown, rumors that she was planning a funeral for Lil’ Kim onstage, and the free concert she’s organizing to make it up to her fans. Hear what Nicki had to say below.

On her Summer Jam pullout: “After all this has been said and done, I wasn’t gonna do ‘Starships’ and I think people know that. I’m way smarter than that. I know what people wanted to see. I think it was just someone trying to be sarcastic, but like every other artist said, it was horrible timing, it was in bad taste. Everybody makes mistakes, but you’ve got to own your mistake. When you don’t own it, then you feel like you can do this in the future and get away with it.”

On support from her peers: “Even artists that were supposed to come out on my set were asked to perform and they said, ‘If Nicki’s not on that stage, then I’m not on that stage and we gonna ride out on loyalty tonight.’ We all salute Lauryn [Hill] and she gave an amazing statement about this whole thing and no one has said anything. Nas retweeted that, [Fabolous] tweeting last night, and Cam and Fox showed me so much love that same night. This is something that’s horrible and it needs to be addressed.”

On her friendship with Foxy Brown: “I reached out to her a few months ago. This has been going on for a very long time. She’s always been a part of the lineup and I’ve known I’m doing doing Summer Jam for maybe a year now. People are very crazy if they think this is something that I just decided. … I just really always loved her. I always made it known how much I loved her and Lauryn Hill. When she found out the whole drama, I thought she was gonna be disappointed, but instead she called me like, ‘Yo Nick, I am riding with you. We are all here. We’re not leaving this hotel. We support your decision.’ Everybody supported the decision. Everybody was like, ‘Yo, Wayne is completely right and we made the right move.’”

On rumors that she was planning a funeral for Lil’ Kim during her Summer Jam set: “Absolutely not. … Envy, I don’t even want you to finish that sentence because that’s not in my character and that’s ridiculous. Let’s stop with all the rumors that are giving people false hope that they’re relevant. I’m not about to come on my stage and bring death on my stage. My stage is about life and love, period. Nobody that was irrelevant was going to be made relevant on my stage. Absolutely not.”

On Peter Rosenberg’s remarks: “You should think about that before you attack the only woman on the bill. Something should have kicked in and said, ‘You know what, wow, this girl, I may not like one or two songs, but she is holding it down for every woman in hip-hop right now at this moment.’ If you don’t understand that, you’re freaking stupid.”

On being her own boss: “I don’t want an apology. I don’t care about an apology. The only thing I care about was handling my business last night because Flex is right, I do handle my own. I don’t ask anyone to speak for me and I typically go about things as a boss. Me having loyalty to Wayne and Cash Money and Young Money, that is a boss move. If you don’t have loyalty to your family, you will never understand what it is to be a boss.”

On the free concert she’s planning for her fans: “It’s still in the works, but it’s definitely gonna happen. This was actually Wayne’s suggestion. Wayne was like, ‘Yo, we can do our own show for the people. You don’t have to feel bad.’”

On her response to the critics: “Until you can respect me, I’m not even walking and sitting in that room. People were saying, well you should have still walked on that stage and showed them. I don’t have to show anyone shit.”

    @Lmao!, An exorcism DEFINITELY represents (eccentric) life and vitality while dildos can be emblematic of sensual love…or maybe she just loves dildos. These observations aside, she’s speaking of the energy she exudes onstage you silly goose!

    Suck them tears up, BITCH. Reply:

    @KeNation, Dildos? REALLY? A life and LOVE concert shouldn’t have ANYTHING to do with you swinging a DILDO. Yet she wants to call herself a ROLE MODEL and WOMAN. You can clearly tell her mother wasn’t on her ass at a young age. Everything that comes out of Nicki’s mouth just seem like talk. Smh.

    Jake Reply:

    @Suck them tears up, BITCH., Why do you take her so fucking seriously? using dildos on stage was obviously a joke lmfao. I don’t know why people are arguing about this, she provides good energy on stage for fans, not for haters. We like it, so your opinions are pretty irrelevant tbh.

    nini Reply:

    @Jake, pulling out a fake dick is suppose to be a joke? what artist do you know take that as a joke and say their set is about “love”? let me know. y’all fans are delusional and she’s not a great performer at all.

    yourbossk Reply:

    @Suck them tears up, BITCH.,
    you painting nicki minaj as a hoe? im a nicki fan but i respect kim as am artists because no one can denied that she aslo paved a way for female rappers, like nicki is doing now. but there is no way in hell you can be callin micki a hoe, amd try and defend him as not being one. she was fucking biggie when he was married, and god knows what other guys shes slept with. your kimmy was infamous for being a dutty slut so dont even touch down on that with nicki. im done.

    From Tokyo Reply:

    @…, Guess some people don’t know the meaning of the word “respect”, nor do they know that in this world, in order to get respect from people, you have to earn it. I don’t hate Nicki, but she is nowhere near respectability. She doesn’t even know what that is. People’s rationale for the things she does is just AMAZING. The simple truth is she is yet another prominent negative example of black women. People who are happy enough to only go on the examples in media think that she is what African-American women are. Like a child, she’s too ignorant to realize the damage she does. The way people THINK about you is the way they will TREAT you. And she doesn’t get that at all, nor do the fans who boast about how she “gets money”. I get good money, but not at the expense of respectability and pride. *sigh*

    Just like Nicki continues to throw subliminals for no reason, Kim has the right to speak her mind…it’s not gonna die down anytime soon, it’s an ongoing issue between these two.

    I think it’s funny that she’s STILL trying to claim that Lauryn Hill was there for her when Ms. Hill has said otherwise AND the Hot 97 PROGRAM DIRECTOR OF SUMMER JAM Ebo (The one she kept referencing in the interview with Flex) spoke on the matter this morning and said that Lauryn Hill was NOT THERE FOR NICKI! He also said that Nicki was NOT THE HEADLINER! It’s on Hot 97′s website. She needs to chill with the lies. Last thing. How are you going to claim Kim is irrelevant but Stupid Hoe was definitely about Kim plus you were about to be on stage with Foxy…… __/

    Can a Nicki stan please answer this for me? Nicki’s saying that Kim is irrelevant so does that go for Lauryn Hill and Foxy Brown too because they havent released albums in over 10+ years? Oh the irony right i swear you people are so fake just like the artist you support. Kim is the one with the biggest valid argument that is supported by facts, what facts do you have to back up Nicki’s claim? absolutely none. Kim was never bitter she was telling the truth the WHOLE time and you had the audacity to sit there and say Kim is being the bitter one? Yall have a lot of nerve.

    I actually heard heard this interview and rapUp left a lot out. To me I saw I side of Nicki I never saw b4. She passed off as very very ignorant, and arrogant(maybe she is always like this, idk I’m not a fan). But any Lil Kim isn’t irrevelant at all. Idgaf whether she does stuff anymore or not. She is one of the handfull of female rappers that paved a way for people like Nicki to have a career. The fact that Nicki has a career now makes her relevant IMO

    Nicki contradicted herself. She said no one irrelevant will be made relevant on her stage. Lauryn Hill and Foxy Brown are legends, but like most legends, are irrelevant. If they were to drop music tomorrow, no one would buy it.

    And who is trying to fool? We all know she was gonna bring out Foxy as a dig as Kim. Foxy’s beef with Kim is the only major highlight of her career. And of course those Nicki stans at Power 105 didnt bring that up. Charlamagne is the biggest Nicki stan on radio.
